Ableton is a music software that supports so many different workflows and hardware setups that users can apply to their system.
Ableton has been working on improving this software time after time, there latest Release version being Live 10.
Live 10’s boasts of a gigantic list of improvements since it’s the most significant update to the DAW since Live 7 arrived in 2007. There’s a new synth called Wavetable, three new effects, lots of changes to help you make music faster and redesigned sound libraries. So, now it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or experienced producer, you’ll be able to take full advantage of its workflow improvements, new sounds, new devices, and creative tools.
The design has been tweaked as well.
Here is the breakdown of the live 10 new features:
Drum Buss will give you almost every drum sound beat. It is a station that is capable of adding subtle character or bending and breaking drums to your will. Add warmth and distortion with drive and crunch, take control of dynamics with compression and transient shaping, dial in and tune boom and control bass decay with the dedicated low-end section.
Echo brings together the sound of classic analog and digital hardware delays in a single device—your new go-to delay. Drive and shape sounds with its analog-modeled filters, turn up the noise and wobble for vintage imperfections, or add modulation and reverb to create diffuse soundscapes, wailing feedback and more
Wavetable is a new synthesizer built by Ableton. Shape, stretch and morph sounds using wavetables derived from analog synths, and a range of other instruments and sounds. Start sculpting sounds right away—even without a deep knowledge of synthesis—or explore its rich palette and potential through an intuitive interface.
Pedal brings the character of analog stomp boxes to Live. It features separate circuit-level models of overdrive, distortion and fuzz guitar pedals. It excels at warming up vocals and other instruments, driving synth sounds or completely smashing drums, and sounds great with guitars.
Live 10 is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2018. For now, the company is taking 20% off all versions of Live 9, with the option to upgrade to Live 10 at no extra charge when released. Watch a trailer for Live 10 below.
